The Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda mixes sit together behind the crenelated yellow dividers of the imperial compound on the riverfront, and are normally found in a consolidated visit. Put aside 1-2 hours to see both. Visit guides are accessible at the door, and however they charge an expense, are still suggested. As the majority of the structures confront east, the best light for photographs is toward the beginning of the day hours.
Inside the Palace grounds road sounds are quieted and Royal structures sit like lavish islands ascending from the manicured gardens. The Palace fills in as the King's living arrangement, a scene for court service and as an image of the Kingdom. It was set up at this area when the capital was moved to Phnom Penh in 1866. Khmer and European components and in addition echoes of the castle in Bangkok are available in the plan of the structures.
Appended to the Palace compound, Wat Preah Keo Morokat the 'Silver Pagoda' is special among pagodas. The place the King meets with priests, Royal functions are performed and it houses a gathering of invaluable Buddhist and verifiable articles including the 'Emerald Buddha.' The sanctuary building, library and displays were first developed in the vicinity of 1892 and 1902.
